water-pumpers @ brands hatch!



It may have been foggy and wet at Brands Hatch today, but that didn't stop the Mk2 Golf race series drivers from giving it everything they had... especially down the main straight!
oh, and that's UVW's ace snapper Gwynn Clark blocking the view at the end of the clip... Hi Gwynn!

Race demos aside, F1 racing legend Jonathan Palmer ( www.palmersport.com ) headed an impressive presentation of the 2011 MSVR ( www.msvracing.co.uk ) racing programme, which covered not only the Mk2 Golf series, but also the Mk3 GT TDi challenge and the hotly contested VAG trophy series, too.

We had a great day out, and enjoyed an alternative side of VW motorsport, too!

Got camber?? check out this wild Oni-style Jap ride...



it's not only old VWs that love a bit of camber... but these Oni guys specifically build/modify their hubs to add up to 45-deg of camber!

another Oni car... (scary, i know!)



but hey, they probably don't understand a narrowed beam and tuckin'!
